Just over a century ago, Malta went through one of the most important historical moments of our time. And to remember it all, one of the best hip hop acts this island has ever seen has returned, just in time for Sette Giugno.
No Bling Show has returned from the long hiatus of chilling on Malta’s wall of fame to grace us with a music video of their 2013 classic banger Il-Kotra. And with 101 turbulent years now separating us from that fateful 7th June in 1919, there sure is a lot to say.
Adding a contemporary touch to the national holiday, Il-Kotra‘s music video kicks off with the century-old riots that started it all, as fire verses are spit amidst the firing of muskets… all from the point of view of one of the four victims of that fateful day.
Fast forward to 7th June 2020, and how many things have changed?
Well, a lot actually. But whether that’s enough is a separate argument.
Breeches have become boiler suits and the subjects of controversy might’ve shifted from British troops firing onto crowds to controversial government contracts, but what does Malta really look like 101 years after the shitstorm that ignited a thousand fires? Well, let Jon Mallia and Lapes walk you through it.
The glorious music video that marks No Bling Show’s return to our screens was made possible thanks to our good friends over at Sphinx.
Purveyors of some of the tastiest hot snacks this side of the Mediterranean, Sphinx Pastizzeria have become synonymous with quality nationwide.
This isn’t the first time that Sphinx found themselves backing a super cool campaign either; just last summer, Lovin Malta had teamed up with the genius Muscat Brothers to experiment with some new flavours, bringing you two new summer pastizzi.
